Wikipedia ... Universal Studios Dubailand is a proposed Universal theme park located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is to be located within Dubailand, an entertainment mega-complex.
The project is a joint venture costing over 8 billion dirhams ($2.2 billion US) with Dubai-based Tatweer, a partner in Dubai Holdings, Inc. The theme park was announced on April 30, 2007 and broke ground July 27, 2008.
The park is expected to attract 5 million visitors annually when it is completed. Originally slated to open in 2010, the global financial crisis of 2008-2009 has prompted the developers to delay the opening until at least the first quarter of 2012.

I remember driving to the Dubai Outlet Mall one day, and rubbed my eyes in disbelife when I saw the famous Universal Studios arch in the desert ... Perhaps one day the build will continue!
